First Week of Legislative Overtime: Budget Bills Advance

April 26, 2018

The House and Senate took action on several budget bills this week, which means they are getting one step closer to the conclusion of the legislative session. The House passed two budget bills Wednesday, including the non-controversial Transportation Budget HF 2494 and HF 2491 (Ag & Natural Resources). The House also passed HF 2493 (Economic Development Budget) on Thursday.

As of publication of this newsletter, the Senate is considering budget bills in the full Senate Appropriations Committee. Even though the House and Senate each start different budget bills, the Senate is expected to pass eight of the 10 bills out of full committee.
